About Comox Valley Transition Society

The Comox Valley Transition Society and Dawn to Dawn are getting ready to host the 6th annual Coldest Night of the Year, a covid-safe, virtual walk to end homelessness.


CVTS offers outreach and support to individuals and families who are presently or are at risk of becoming homeless; we operate 23 units of provincially subsidized housing and administer rental supplements to make housing more affordable for women, children and families who are tenants of those units; and, we operate the Connect Warming Centre, a safe, welcoming place for vulnerable individuals who are experiencing or at risk of becoming homeless.


Last year our community came out by the 100's and raised more than $100,000 . Please join us in 2021 as we strive to raise $121,000 to help families and individuals who are experiencing or facing homelessness in the Comox Valley. From February 12-21, 2021, we will be walking apart, but we will all be working together.

Virtual CNOY Day

This is your own self-organized micro-walk! Virtual CNOY Day should feel pretty familiar once you get walking - here are some key things you'll need to do on February 20 (or whatever day in February you decide to walk):

  • Gather with your covid-safe bubble (or on your own)
  • Map out a safe 2-5 km route
  • Let someone know where you are
  • Bring a cell phone in case of emergency
  • Share online as you go! #cnoy21
  • Keep fundraising (half of all fundraising happens in the last week!)
  • Be safe and have fun!
